on suicide watch, was suffering from ptsd, and today, former congressman ron paul tweeted about your friend, chris. he said chris kyle's death seems to confirm that he who lives by the sword dies by the sword. treating ptsd at a firing range doesn't make sense. marcus, does it surprise you that chris would have taken a young man like this who was so fragile to a shooting range to treat ptsd, or do you think that would have been normal and understandable? >> is that what he said, huh? >> that's what ron paul said. what do you think about it? >> what i think about it is probably not good for tv. but chris -- he's not a professional doctor. he's not qualified to treat people for ptsd. that wasn't the thing. he was just going there to get this kid to hang out with him, to get his mind off of whatever it was on. and to have a good time, just to get him out of the house. i don't think that whatever the reports are saying, you know, kind of being embellished a little bit. i don't think chris was there to treat him for anything. i think he was there to hang out with him as a fellow veteran and to t

from ptsd. now, chris kyle and other veterans there in texas would often try to independently help those with ptsd by taking them to shooting ranges to sort of blow off steam. now, according to officials in texas, this was the first time that kyle and his friend had met eddie ray routh at this shooting range about 50 miles outside ft. worth on saturday, when suddenly and allegedly, routh opened fire with a hand gun at point-blank range allegedly again killing both kyle and the other former service member. now, routh is in jail, he's expected to be charged with two counts of capital murder at this time, and according to law enforcement officials, the exact motive is unclear. again, it's suspected he was suffering from ptsd. we don't have that officially from anybody, but exactly what triggered that shooting incident is still in question. and there are also some questions being raised about what psychiatrists call exposure therapy, the thought that you can expose those troubled veterans to a shooting range, for example, to blow off steam. sometimes that helps but psychiatrists will t

expose people who are suffering from ptsd, post traumatic stress disorder, exposing them to what the traumatic event was. with ptsd you have a magnified reaction to some sort of event. whether it's a loud noise or a smell can trigger the flash backs and can be haunting. about 20% of returning veterans have or will have ptsd. not much that works. this therapy will slowly innoculate back to the traumatic event. and talk them through it. it should be stressed that this is done in a controlled setting. you are basically trying to get people to relive this and talk through this in the past. now with this exposure, they will immerse them in similar situations to what caused the trauma in the first place. >> the former congressman ron paul who is a physician as you know, he tweeted this and will put it up on the screen. he tweeted, chris kyle's death seems to confirm that he who lives by the sword dies by the sword at a firing range doesn't make sense. does this therapy, does it make any sense? >> she right in the sense that this should be done by someone who is a professional in a cont
